What I’m Watching: Minx

Minx: Season 1, Episode 4 “An exciting new chapter in the annals of erotica” (B+)

It’s a lot of fun to see Joyce try to educate everyone else about what feminism means, and that was particularly true with Shane. He is the epitome of what people think about models, which could have been appropriate given the gender flip that made him just like the female models who might have graced the covers of Doug’s other magazines. But, as we know, even though they may not be well-versed in egalitarianism and other concepts, there’s more to them than meets the eye. In Shane’s case, he was attracted to the fact that Joyce always sounded smart but he was most certainly not on the same page as her regarding the fact that they were just having fun. Doug was enjoying the opportunity to gloat as Joyce was the one being irresponsible for once and mixing business with pleasure, and fortunately Joyce found a way to apologize to Shane while still maintaining a level of professionalism. The press conference didn’t go all that terribly, and it was a relief that Glenn volunteered to take it from his group of cruel chauvinists so that he could help her get things back on track. I like how Tina is trying to keep the company afloat while Doug puts way too much of his own money into this one magazine, and seeing it now come to fruition should be interesting since it’s likely going to be quite popular but also attract some negative attention from those who absolutely do not want it to succeed.
